Buckle down, we’re going on a virtual road trip. Check out Western Australia’s pink lakes and national parks through our photographer’s DSLR lens.

Port Gregory’s “Pink Lake”

Early morning sunrises are meant to be caught at pink lakes. Carotenoid-producing algae thrive in these waters and give the lake its fascinating pinkish hue. The harsher the light, the more pronounced the colours, so keep your fingers crossed for good weather.

Kalbarri National Park

Follow a trail and abseil your way down to Eagle Gorge where you can take photos with huge, rugged boulders against an azure sky. Nearby, lies Nature’s Window. This unique rock formation overlooks the vast and winding Murchinson River. Scared of heights? Don’t look down.

Coral Bay

Snorkel in crystal clear waters or simply relax by the pristine, white-sand beach. Everything you need is within a 10 to 15-minute walk from one place to the next, from cafes and motels to leisure equipment rentals and more. Manta ray swims can also be booked with the operators in town.

Pebble Beach

Millennial pink is just one of the shades you’ll find. Remember to grab some of your favourites back home before you leave.

Northbrook Farmstay

There’s no better place to experience the true-blue Aussie outdoor life. Watch the sun set below the hills and the stars slowly take its place as night falls. Have your DSLR ready to take long-exposures too – it’s not often you get to capture the Milky Way in all its glory.
